CRITICAL IS THE NEW BLACK Fashion in the 21st century

-

In the 21st century, it has become fashionable to claim that fashion is dead. The death of fashion refers to the rise of “fast fashion” which has accelerated the cycle of trends and highlighted ethical problems of fashion production.

 

CRITICAL IS THE NEW BLACK addresses the negation of fashion. It asks, what are the possibilities of fashion as social commentary and critique beyond consumerism? How can fashion help us reflect and rethink culture, world and ourselves? How can fashion help to create a better future in the face of current cultural, political, economical and climatological challenges?

 

CRITICAL IS THE NEW BLACK brings together leading scholars of fashion: Professor Hazel Clark (Parsons School of Design, New York), Professor Peter McNeil (University of Technology Sydney), Professor Paula Hohti (Aalto University), Professor Sofia Pantouvaki (Aalto University), Professor Ossi Naukkarinen (Aalto University) and Professor Annamari Vänskä (Aalto University).

 

CRITICAL IS THE NEW BLACK is organised jointly with EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art in conjunction with the exhibition For Fashion’s Sake. The curator of the exhibition, Reetta Kalajo and one of the participating designers, Hanne Jurmu will give a tour in the exhibition as part of the seminar.
